Vanguard 20-60x82mm Endeavor HD 82A - OR - Vortex Diamondback
« on: October 06, 2017, 05:54:53 AM »
As the title says?  Any one have experience with either one?  My price cap is $500 so please don't suggest something that cost more.  I know there is better options, but this poor missionary can't afford the "better" more costly options  :tup:

Thanks in advance.

I havenít looked thru the Diamondback, but I have looked thru the 65mm Vanguard and was pretty impressed. Most of the stuff I have read on the Vanguard, guys put it up there more with the Viper, but thatís just me reading other peopleís opinions.

Vanguard is head and shoulders better than the diamondback. I have the 65 version and it's very good for the money. :twocents:

Yep, just sold my Vanguard 65, I'd say it's more on par with the Razor.  Here's a really good review on the Vanguard 65.
